Review: Avon Nailwear Pro+ 'Star'



A few weeks ago I entered a nail art contest with Avon, and I was luckily one of the first 200 entrants.
This meant that I was sent one of the polishes from their new Nailwear Pro+ collection.

The Avon Nailwear Pro+ collection comes in 10 shades and is fortified with acrylic gel - to add extra strength, and Dura-Plus Complex - I have no idea what this is and when I googled it I only got results for Avon. Anyone? 
Anyway the product claims "12 days of lasting colour, 10 days of shine and nick-resistant finish."

Avon Nailwear Pro+ in 'Star'  - 2 Coats

Pros:
+ Nice big bottle
+ Easy application
+ Only needed 2 coats
+ Can be worn sheer or opaque

Cons:
- Started to chip after 3 days
- Colour was a little lacklustre 
- Didn't live up to the hype

Notes:
For a polish that claims to be strong and chip resistant I felt a little let down.
I don't do anything where I use my hands more than the average person so I felt a bit sad when it started to chip after only 3 days. I have used other brands of polish that lasted longer and they haven't been ones to claim long-lasting ability. Even so I really liked that the polish was opaque after only 2 coats and that I could also wear it sheer, or layer it over other polishes. The colour wasn't something I would choose myself, but maybe that's a good thing as it has let me try something different.

All in all, it was good for a free polish and at [currently] £2.49 you can't really complain.
You can buy Avon Nailwear Pro+ polishes here.
